According to social media posts made by owner Keith Lambert this morning, New England for Trump is closing several stores this week.
“Our last day in Middleboro, Falmouth and Webster will be today Sunday 12/27. All items will be $5-10. Come help us clear out our inventory!! Somerset, MA will close on Wednesday as well. We have lots of 2nd amendment and law enforcement stuff left as well. ”
In November, Lambert, who opened the new location at 899 G.A.R. Highway in Somerset in early August, stated to Fall River Reporter that he had no current plans to close.
“As of right now we have no immediate plans of closing. We will continue to sell Patriotic, Veteran, 2A, and Back The Blue products.”
Lambert stated at the time that he donates the maximum amount of proceeds allowed to President Trump.
“We have donated a percentage of our sales to the Trump campaign throughout, and we will continue to donate to his election defense fund. We donate the maximum amount to the Trump campaign based on our sales, and we will continue to do so to support our President’s fight against voter fraud!”
The stores have received numerous death threats and threats of violence and harassment, according to Lambert.
The Somerset location had been vandalized previously with spray paint.
New England for Trump sells merchandise consisting of all things Trump along with patriotic items.
Some of the items for sale include a variety of t-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies printed in the United States in a variety of sizes for men and women along with jackets, knit hats, caps, gloves, bumper stickers, mugs, pins, and coins.
